I'm so excited to share a collection of images from Alexa & Jarrett's September wedding. This couple not only planned their big day in just a few short months but did so from clear across the country, Classic styling and the incorporation of Military traditions make this Old Mill wedding a gorgeous celebration to remember!
The Concordville Inn was the center of all the getting-ready fun for this couple. The ladies toasted the occasion with mimosas in lovely stemless champagne flutes, each with their name etched in gold script and finished with sherbet striped paper straws. Alexa selected a gorgeous a-line lace gown and completed her bridal look with a dramatic cathedral length veil. Jarrett and his best man Blair are seen below preparing for the ceremony by making sure that their dress uniforms are in tip, top shape.
Alexa and Jarrett's wedding ceremony was a traditional Catholic mass held at St. John Chrysostom in Wallingford Pennsylvania. Beautiful florals accented the alter and the ceremony concluded with one of my new favorite things- a military saber arch! Jarrett has been serving his country as an army captain and I was so excited that the couple wanted to include this classic military tradition in their big day. At the conclusion of the arch Alexa and Jarrett chose to surprise their friends and family with a bagpiper. Including these two elements in their ceremony made the traditional mass feel personal and unique to the couple.
The reception venue, Rose Valley's Old Mill was the perfect backdrop for portraits. Post ceremony Jarrett opted for a costume change from uniform to suit.
Alexa chose to incorporate so many delightful details into her wedding celebration. The escort cards were custom blush tags featuring gold calligraphy and a single vintage key. The tags were finished with a masala ribbon and tied to plantation shutters. The guest tables were dressed in blush, damask linens accented by crips ivory napkins. Gold chargers and chiavari chairs with white cushions created a romantic tablescape. Fresh Designs Florist created three unique centerpiece styles that created a dramatic environment in the dinning room. Perhaps my favorite decor element of this reception was the lush floral garden wall that featured vintage shutters covered in florals and greens accented by candle bedecked lanterns.
Alexa and Jarret's wedding was just so pretty! I had a great time working with both of them to create a stunning celebration. Cheers and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day!
